As I mentioned in my about me page, I follow a lot of blogs and stores.  I plan to share the best of the best with you each Sunday.

Money Talks News is one of my all-time favorites.  If you subscribe you get two emails a day (am and pm) with great posts on money saving ideas.

Also, 9 time best selling author David Bach has a great Sunday newsletter, recently changed to 3 Minute Sunday.

With the holidays right around the corner, check out BlackFriday.com for the current sales and  Black Friday ads from Kohls, Target, Walmart and many other stores.

Also, speaking of Kohls, today is the last day of their Veteran’s Day Sale (30% and other stackable items for online shopping be sure to log into Ebates first to save even more).

Finally Groupon’s final day of 12 Days of Doorbusters ends today.

Have a great day!
